As part of the Camden Antiques Fair, a "gallop" will take place through downtown and Dusty Bend today from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Several antique and specialty stores will be open, giving residents, visitors and fair dealers a chance to enjoy shopping and restaurants in historic Camden.
The gathering place will be the 1011 Galleria where refreshments and a list of participating businesses are available. Look for the "open" posters on windows bearing jockey silks with the Camden Antiques Fair logo.
The gallop is part of the mission of the fair and presented to fortify Camden’s reputation as an antiquing destination.
